Leeds raises over £5,000 for St Gemma’s Hospice

The Colleague Charity Group at the Society raised £5,750 for Leeds based St Gemma’s Hospice in 2014.

This brings to £25,000 the amount donated by the Society to the Moortown charity over the last five years, to assist them in providing the best possible care and quality of life for local people with cancer and other life threatening illnesses.

Tracie Harrison, Senior Fundraiser at St Gemma’s Hospice, visited the Society’s Head Office to celebrate the donation.

She commented: “Leeds Building Society has provided incredible support over the past few years, raising a fantastic amount for patient care. The majority of our annual £9 million running costs must be raised from the local community, and we simply could not continue to provide all of our services if we did not receive wonderful support like this each year.

“Everyone at St Gemma’s would like to say a huge thank you to all of the staff at Leeds Building Society for their fantastic support over the past five years.”
